“Great meal, wonderful hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I'm always wary of going to restaurants recommended by the owner of the B&B, but this one turned out. Strangers who helped us find it, raved about it. Everything was very fresh. I believe that if something wasn't on the menu, it was because it wasn't caught in the sea or available from the garden that day. The seafood pasta was the best that I got during our three weeks in Italy. One son got pasta with zucchini flowers and the other son got pasta (he doesn't remember what it was from nine days ago). They both liked their dishes. The bread and wine were excellent. One of the complementary dishes, a light fluffy fried ricotta my oldest son loved, but my other son and I said "meh". The bread was baked fresh, and very good. There were several other complimentary dishes, so though the price was a bit high, for what we got, it was quite reasonable.

“Special meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

If you enjoy quality food and fine dining this restaurant is for you. Dino and Elena run this small but first quality restaurant but you may need directions to find it. They have some excellent wines but Elena will not recommend anything until you have chosen what to eat. We ordered grilled turbot, and a light red from Umbria was recommended to accommpany it. An appitiser of ricotta moose came first (complementary) and we did not order an entree as the bar we visited for pre-dinner drinks (did not note the name but directly in front of the old church - try the house red- outstanding) gave us such a fabulous selection of nibbles that we called that the entree. Did not order dessert but out came some chocolate goodies (again no charge).

“bland and expensive for salerno”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

got referred to this place by our b&b owner who was a friend. service was friendly, the place was nice. the menu looked good. But the food was just tasteless and bland, we really were surprised. the food was presented very well too and the portions were generous. it had all the ingredients for a decent place (pardon the pun), but the food really let it down, then it was quite expensive for what it was. for a third of the price we had a much better meal in a place along the main stretc the next day.

“The best food in Salerno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Dined there in July. Elena was a very attentive and helpful waitress, and Dino a wonderful chef. The restaurant is cozy, which we liked. The food and wine were spectacular from start to finish. Elena was very helpful with her recommendations and she even helped create dishes for one of our group who is vegetarian. The prices were reasonable for this quality of food. Elena even went to so far as to recommend restaurants in other areas of Amalfi, including who to ask for at the restaurants.
